I’m 62 years old,Christian,army veteran,high school graduate. Born and lived in the Florida panhandle all my life. Married to Shelley Robinson for 30 years,together we have four children and four grandchildren. I was an air conditioning contractor for 21 years. I made my first knife out of the desire to give my oldest grandson a Christmas gift handmade by me. That was about twelve years ago and what became a hobby is now my full time occupation,since I sold my air conditioning business in 2008. Formerly a Dragracer,my hobbies now are turkey and deer hunting. I make mostly Slipjoint and linerlock folders but occasionally make a fixed blade skinner,fillet or chef knife.
